What is hot in fashion this year?
At retail there is a move to using Tencel instead of silk such as Eileen Fisher and others are doing. Ultraviolet is showing up in sheets, florals and plaids. Pop art as always is being explored from new designers and Schiaparelli.
Trench coats in new shapes and fabrics. Dark denim shirt dresses and separates. Floral embroidered pieces such as leggings, peasant tops and kimonos from Johnny Was. Saleable understated knits to layer from Eileen Fisher. Embellishment is everything!
